THE BLACKWOOD CRUSADE
What if the medieval folklore of old was based in truth? And what if just one girl was charged with the task of destroying it?
Adventure, swordfights, love, loss, faeries, battles… and magic. All in one book.
A fairytale for ages 10 – 100.
Christina opens the wooden chest of her dead stepmother to discover she has been saddled with the ongoing task of the ancient Ostergaard family: To rid the entire world of faeries.
The only problem is, as far as she knows, faeries DO NOT exist.
Meanwhile, less than a mile away in the village of Blackwood, three friends are discovering just how very much faeries do exist. And just how dangerous they really are.
Christina is thrown into a violent, supernatural world of faerie killing, but it is only with the help of the three friends that she can hope to come out of the battle alive.
This story is a collaboration with Dr. Melchior Williams, who discovered a treasure trove of intriguing manuscripts from medieval Blackwood hidden away in the depths of the British Museum – documents which seem to suggest the existence and destruction of the mythological creatures so ingrained in the medieval world. He provided the facts and I provided the fiction. We both hope you enjoy the result!
